I finally watched The Princess Bride all the way through tonight. I have seen bits and pieces of it many times, but never the whole thing.
I have this really bad habit of never being able to sit still through anything, especially an entire movie. Now, if I’m in a theater, it’s different… but if I’m at home and there’s other things to do (and there always is), I’ll eventually get up and do something else.
So, there are many, many movies that I haven’t seen at all (ie – Wizard of Oz, Godfather trilogy, Shawshank Redemption, MANY more), and movies I’ve only seen very little of (Star Wars movies, Indiana Jones movies, most musicals and classics).
It’s interesting, though, because I LOVE great film. Here’s my top list (of the ones I’ve actually seen all the way through!) [Disclaimer: I'm not condoning some of these as ones you want to watch with your family ... so be forewarned.]
